Citation patterns of a controversial and high-impact paper: worm et Al. (2006) “impacts of biodiversity loss on ocean ecosystem services”.
PLoS One. 2013;8(2):e56723
Authors: Branch TA
Citation patterns were examined for Worm et al. 2006 (Science 314∶787-790), a high-impact paper that focused on relationships between marine biodiversity and ecosystem services. This paper sparked much controversy through its projection, highlighted in the press release, that all marine fisheries would be collapsed by 2048.
